Hand Shaped Soup Recipe

Alex has been talking about making "hand shaped soup" for a few days. It is an Alex original. Here is the recipe, exactly as dictated:

1 egg
2 cups baking powder
1 cup vanilla extract
4 cups milk
1 cup flour
3 cups sugar

Mix all ingredients in a big bowl and bake for 5 minutes.

Doesn't it sound delicious? I am almost ready to let her make it, just to see her face when she tastes it.

Reminds me of the time my sister's 1st grade teacher had each child write the instructions for "How to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich" and then the teacher read them to the class and made the sandwiches exactly as the recipes directed. I'll have to remember that one for the next rainy afternoon.

Delicious? Not so much. I'll let you try it first.

Bryan's response: "I bet that would taste like VANILLA."

Hahaha, that was Mrs. Forman, right? Because I always made my sandwiches right on the table (without a plate), this is how I wrote my instructions. I recall being surprised to learn that people use plates to make their sandwiches in more 'traditional' households :)
